#1 Lesson Learned: My yearnings for summer made me realize that we have to treasure what we have when we have it, because just as seasons come and go, some precious times of our lives come and go. Every second is someone's destiny. Every minute is an awakening. Every hour is a time of purpose. Every day is a day the Lord has made and we must rejoice and be seriously GLAD that this day has come. Every moment counts. Like right now.

#2 Lesson learned: Sometimes pausing helps us reflect on the doing. It's a good thing to PAUSE once in a while. Nevertheless we must do. It's the doing that counts. We can't pause forever. We can't stop the tasks God has given us. We must pause to reflect, but we must also get up and get going. We must have the anointing of a FINISHER. I'm going to finish the book.

#3 Lesson Learned: There's frailty in the human body. Notwithstanding, let the weak say "I am strong" because the ultimate victory lies with God. We can overcome every hard thing that comes against us because we were given dominion when God laid the foundations of the world. In illness, if you can have the tenacity to get up and walk about the room, even when your body does not want to cooperate, do you know that your walking brings healing? That's one thing the Mr. told me, he said, "Don't just lie down, get up and walk around and you will be well." And it worked.
Question for the Day: How has February been for you? My prayer for you today is the same one Jabez prayed in 1 Chronicles 4:10, "Oh, that God will bless you indeed, and enlarge your territory, that His hand would be with you, and that He would keep you from evil, that you may not cause pain." God answered Jabez (whose name meant "pain"), and He can answer this prayer too. Have the most beautiful weekend.
